Orchard Hills has earned EPA’s Energy Star! Over the past three years an “Energy Incentive” has been offered to each school. The certification process isn’t easy. Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Energy Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account. Data is then gathered and compared. We then receive a score based on the grading criteria.

Orchard Hills teachers true professionals! They are always trying to develop their teaching skills to benefit their students. Each month teachers are trained during a literacy or math collaboration meeting taught by district coaches. The materials presented are then used in the classroom. As one teacher said, "If we want our students to be life long learners, we need to set an example."
